Nothing is going to come from this, so just relax.
Also anyone that has a brain knows that creative makes the superior products. Anyone that decides to stop selling creative products would be making a huge mistake and would cost their own business thousands.
not every company is perfect and every company has their reasons for doing what they do. I cant believe this comes as a shock to so many people.
There's the rub for me.
I've long thought that Creative's stuff isn't the best. Of course, that's purely my subjective opinion. Everyone's got a different pair of ears, and we all hear things a little differently.
But things such as driver support and hardware incompatibilities are objective facts. This is where Creative really dropped the ball.
This whole story is about Creative's corporate avarice finally being exposed; the clients are finally responding with what is the closest thing to violence. An entire segment of the market now wants to hurt the company where it hurts most; a threat to stop the flow of green into the coffers is a kick to the jewels.
And for what? For suggesting that Creative is being robbed by someone who actually helped their gimped product become better?
I guess Creative forgot that they already got their money when the end-user bought their cards
